I have been a teacher, educator and life mentor to youngsters for the last 42 years of my life. I graduated in Israel and have my teaching diploma from Sede Boker College. During the first 10 years of my career, I taught middle school and high school in Eilat city. I was the principal of an Israeli school in Nigeria for 7 years. For the past 12 years, I have taught Hebrew
, Jewish studies, and prepared Bnei Mitzvah for their Bar-Bat Mitzvah
in the San Francisco area. I also was an educator of a Reform Temple in northern California for 7 years.
My method of teaching eliminates any sort of pressure and make the process as friendly as possible. I tailor the curriculum according to the student's needs. Living in Israel for many years, even being the Deputy Mayor of my home town, I emphasize in my teaching a love for Israel and Judaism
. I love my work and my students are giving me their love in return.
Here is what one of my students had to say about my work: "Middle school can be a tough transition from elementary school. There is more homework, and there are new teachers and new students in an overall new environment. Luckily, Moreh Jackie, who was my Jewish Studies teacher throughout middle school, came to the rescue to make my transition very smooth. With Jackie’s charming presence, combined with the humor he brings to the classroom, he easily became my favorite teacher because he was able to make lessons both exciting and interesting. In my few years learning with him, he inspired me to continue my Jewish studies through high school, which I am extremely thankful for. Overall, Jackie is a wise man and a great friend who will always be remembered as my most inspiring Jewish Studies teacher."
